The star who last month signed a two-year, $48 million contract extension with the team, missed the first part of the season to recover from surgery for a torn torn Achilles tendon from a game last season:

Bryant announced his return via a cryptic video on his Facebook page that presented his Lakers jersey and said, simply, "December 8."
The team tweeted it: "Kobe announced his return exclusively on Facebook." The 35-year-old baller said he'll serve out his last days in pro basketball as a Laker. The injury was serious enough for some to question whether he'll ever be the same. It has been a career-ender for others.
